AP/Yahoo offered up the blurb below when Assad died.
It failed to note that Sadat was killed
because of his support for peace w/ Israel.
And, that Assad and Gadhafi stayed popular w/

And, that the "Federation" never materialized.
Just one more benefit of Israel: Anti-American Arab leaders.
President Anwar Sadat of Egypt, left, Col. Moammar Gadhafi of Libya,
